Chatfield State Park is a hidden oasis, just miles outside the hustle-and-bustle of downtown Denver. Inundated with nearly two-hundred campsites, there’s no shortage of sites for the reservation-savvy camper. Because of the area’s proximity to the Chartfield Reservoir, these otherwise numerous campsites will fill quickly, so be sure to pay the reservation fee promptly! Go ahead, book one of the campsites for you (or your camping cohort) for a bonding session with good ‘ol Mother Nature. And keep your eyes on the horizon for a patriotic emblem; Chartfield State Park’s home to flocks of bald eagles.

I've tent camped here quite a few times as I grew up in the small town nearby. It is a great location if you're looking to do activities in a city area. There is some hiking in the park and the reservoir is always fun! There are local stores and gas everywhere. Overall, not bad but definitely city camping.
